Our pure Patchouli essential oil is from Indonesia and distilled from the leaf of the Patchouli plant. Originally the leaves of the plant were placed between Indian cashmere shawls en route to Victorian England to protect them from moths. In the East, it is used in potpourris and sachets to place between linen in order to keep bedbugs away. Patchouli can be used in homemade skincare, perfumes, baths, massage oil, and diffusers to feel the benefits. It is considered to be one of the best home remedies for acne, eczema, inflammation, and cracked, chapped, or irritated skin. It also has cell-rejuvenating properties, making it excellent for anti-aging and lessening the look of scars. Patchouli is antifungal, anti-inflammatory, an antidepressant, and an immune booster. It helps with a variety of things in addition to the above, like preventing infection, helping the metabolic system, stimulating hormones, reducing insomnia, repelling bugs, deodorizing, fighting fever, and strengthening hair and skin.
